When you plan to renovate your house, you can also think about keeping a dedicated space for your washing machine in your home. Here are some tips for you:
Placing your washing machine outside the bathroom will keep your machine dry and will last for a long time.
The position of your machine desires three primary services. The first one is a water outlet for the used water to flow out. Carefully discussing the requirements with your builder/architect can result in practical solutions to this problem. To sum it up, any wall can have an outlet if it is planned in advance.
The second facility that is required is running water supply. If you have the means to afford warm water wash and if your machine supports two inlets, then this is an option. For the majority of users, running cold water is sufficient to wash their clothes. Make sure that the tap/fitting is carefully done. If not ensured, water can drip and flood the interiors of your home.
Some people consider raising the platform for the washing machines. It is especially true for “front-loading” machines where the height may not be sufficient. Ensuring that the floor on which the washing machine rests is flat will make the operation smooth and reduce vibrations.
Some of the typical installations of washing machines that could be avoided include:
Having the washing machine inside the bathroom where it is subject to water sprays from shower, taps and increases the risk of corrosion.
You have the washing machine just outside the bathroom where the bathroom serves as the water outlet and also provides the machine with the needed water for its operation. But this can make your interior look terrible. Instead, you can make a dedicated space for a washing machine where you have a water supply, electric supply, and water drain outlet.
